Billy Ray Sheppard – Silk

His musical roots run deep, having his earliest musical experiences in Blues, R & B, Reggae, Latin, Tejano and Country bands. It’s his love for music that keeps him grounded and his love for jazz that keeps him performing. Soon after academic life, he pursued many different avenues in the field of music; at times as a sideman for many local artists and other times as a studio musician.

Billy Ray Sheppard is one of the first call smooth jazz performers in the San Antonio area, having shared his talents on stage with notable genre stars Steve Oliver, Peter White, Adam Hawley and Will Donato. He’s also performed with Roy Hargrove, Julio Iglesias, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and many more. With his saxophone’s rich, warm, soulful tone, he has made a name for himself on the local and national music scene.

Saxophonist Billy Ray Sheppard’s debut album Silk will be available for purchase and streaming at all the usual music outlets this month. Silk was co-written and produced with smooth jazz hitmaker Steve Oliver and features 10 original tracks!

You can now purchase Silk from CDBaby.
